Classic City Rollergirls at the Athens-Clarke County Library!

You never know who you'll meet at the library! The Classic City Rollergirls recently stopped by so we could take their picture for a READ poster. While here, they visited the Young Adult and Children's areas, browsed our Banned Books display, and rolled through Reference. Keep watching to the end for a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot, and stay tuned for more "Reimagine Your Library" fun!

And the next time you see a Rollergirl, ask her about her favorite book! :-)

What kind of library user are you?

In 2013, the Pew Research Center conducted a landmark survey of people around the country to find out how they used their local libraries. Now they are updating that survey, and we can participate. Take the quiz to find out what kind of library user you are!

Our unique version of this library user quiz will let us gather data specifically about our community. The results will help us learn how people use our local public library, how they think about their library's impact on the community and what their views are on the importance of libraries in the digital age. Any information collected in the quiz will be anonymous and not personally identifiable.
